The time has come

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

The time for regret is over. The time for changes is NOW. I can do this, I need to do this, so what in the hell is stopping me? What am I afraid of? I just don't know. I wish I had the answers and I wish I could just wave a magic wand and have it all fixed. I would be at goal, happy, in great clothes, and eating what I wanted when I wanted. Ok wouldn't we all just love to be that person. Ok so that isn't going to happen and no fairy godmother is coming to my rescue so i'm on my own. Well maybe not all alone, I have Spark and BLC29 to help me along. I just wish I could get my mind to come along without such a big fight each time I think I might want to begin exercising again more frequently, or when I want to eat that salad for lunch instead of the burger from the restaurant down the street. I mean really Michelle? Where did the effort and the time you spent getting near goal go all these long years?

I said I wouldn't look back and beat me up and I won't. So I have to take the bull by the horns so to speak and work this out day by day. It isn't easy changing your way of eating, getting that water in daily, giving up your diet colas, or getting up earlier than usual to get in a few good minutes of exercise but it can be done, one baby step at a time. I came here and said I was working on me and this was my new journey. Well the journey may be different but the inside and the mentality are the same. Sooooooooooooo I must move forward if only a little bit to allow my mind to want to do what is best for my body.

    I have had to tell myself stop trying to figure out what I did in the past to lose weight, begin with today. One day at a time. One step at a time. One realistic goal at a time. You got this! emoticon

    So happy we are on the same team again! emoticon

    Babysteps - one decision at a time.
    Be good to yourself, that burger can wait… :)
    The big obstacle, IMO, is to change our thinking. Weight loss is not hard work. Us, psyching ourselves out over it, is what's stressful. Whoever said, "weight loss starts between the ears", has it nailed.
    Best wishes.
